Bruce hit the nail on the head. The debunking was a splendid
example of research by proclamation. So the Trents made some
kind of object and threw it over the wire etc ad nauseum. And
the Hudson Valley case was just a bunch of small planes. I
thought the good guys came across much better than the bad
guys... rational and sensible and aware of the facts vs.
dogmatic,biased and ignorant.
